Directions

  1. Step 1: Print Out the Backdrops

    Print out the nine-page Blue's Bathroom Backdrops to decorate the inside and outside of your shoe box.

  2. Step 2: Set Design

    Help your child cut out the backdrops to fit your box. There are pages for outside walls (nightstand/mirror), the back wall and the floor. Use the photo as a guide or mix and match and make your own castle! Set aside the pieces designed to make the toilet bowl and the sink.

  3. Step 3: Plumbing

    Cut out the sink and the toilet bowl. Fold the sink along the tabs and in the center. Using tape, attach the top of the sink tab to the side wall under the mirror where indicated. Attach the bottom of the sink tab to the floor where indicated.<br /><br /> Cut out the toilet bowl and fold at the tab. Using tape, attach the tab to the back wall where indicated. Cut out one cup of the egg carton. Apply glue stick to the bottom and top the of the cup. Glue it onto the floor (underneath the toilet bowl where indicated).

  4. Step 4: Make the Puppets

    Print the Blue & Joe Printable Puppets and help your child cut them out. Glue or tape the characters to craft sticks (or popsicle sticks, pencils, chop sticks) and you've got puppets!

  5. Step 5: Put on a Show

    Place the box on the edge of a table or your bathroom counter and add a loop of tape to the bottom to attach it firmly in place. Now you and your child can walk Blue and Joe through their morning routine: using the toilet, flushing, and washing their hands with soap.
